2001 Census of Canada Data
The GNWT has expressed significant concerns about coverage related to the 2001 census and completed its own population survey
to assess the level of undercoverage in the 2001 census. Since it appears that about 10% of the population may have been missed in the 2001 census, results from this census should be used with caution. In particular, analysis of absolute values with previous census years should be avoided.
